A lot of activity on 20m late last night, really unusual propagation after midnight local time, booming signals all over the band. Worked several stations from USA, Azores, England, Sardinia, Spain, Argentina, Russia, Aruba, Portugal, Iceland, Australia plus two new DXCC’s! Had a nice QSO with Bart PJ2BB from Curacao Island, and Jose HP8JAA from Panama was country #116 in my log.
Quite a nice afternoon and evening on 20 meters today. Had some fun with friends, had several very nice contacts in Europe, North and South America an a QSO with Walaa E41WT added a new country to my list.
Saturday May 9 and sunday May 10 is the annual Mills on the Air event, and my club will be participating again from the historic and wonderful wheat mill “De Hoop” in my home QTH Hellevoetsluis in the Netherlands. Our call sign will be PH15MILL and yours truly will be behind the mic of the HF station. We will work on 10-80 meters depending on conditions and time of day, and you can check our current frequency on our QRZ.com page thru the magic of HRDLOG live data. There’s also a VHF operator working on 145.475Mhz. Get in our log and receive the special QSL card and make sure to get the award by working 10 or more mills!
UPDATE: It was great fun. We worked 281 stations, including 24 mills, in 24 countries!
